Nisiopi (Greek: Νησιώπη, also Μεγαλονήσι - Megalonisi) is a long island near the west coast of the island Lesbos, North Aegean, Greece. It is situated in front of Sigri's harbour, and stretches across the mouth of the bay and acts as a buffer to the prevailing winds. In the middle stands an old pharos lighthouse to help ships navigate in the rough east Aegean sea.
